Guardian.co.uk: According to a study by the US Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS), more than half of the world's critical infrastructure companies (electrical grids, gas and oil supplies, etc.) have been the target of cyber-attacks. The McAfee-commissioned study, which was released at the Davos World Economic Forum meeting, puts the price tag for these attacks at £3.6m per day.
The study also revealed that company executives believe these attacks are part of a a "cyber cold war." And The Guardian writes, "A growing number of executives at the companies believe that foreign governments are behind the attacks with the worldwide poll finding that the US and China are believed to pose the biggest threat through cyberattacks."
